What are The Home Business Academy Products?

One of the questions we often get is ‘what products are you selling with the home business academy’?

So in this section, I want to share with you the two most common products that people buy when they get started so that you can be super clear on exactly what it is we sell and offer to people when they get started with us.

You can get all of the content in this section by clicking play on the video below or you can continue reading down below the video…

The first product we have is a funnel builder website, builder tool called The HBA Funnel Builder.

It’s basically a tool that will allow you to create any kind of page you want to create on the internet so you or your customers can do business online in better ways.

You can even create traditional websites with our funnel builder tool.

This is actually our homepage.

The Home Business Academy Home Page (Created with The HBA Funnel Builder)

And so you see we’ve designed just a traditional web page with this funnel builder tool and we’ve done over $2 million in product sales with this exact website. We used our funnel builder tool, which is $25 a month, by the way, to create this website that has sold over $2 million worth of products.

Here’s another example of a site that was created by one of our members for a cleaning service.

These are all digital products that are tied to a purchase and customers can access each of these products with one login, based on their purchase history.

You can fill out these members areas and digital products with video content, PDFs or audios. You’ve got drop downs menus so that your customers can go through the content that you organize inside your products.

Of course you don’t have to build digital products or membership with this but isn’t it cool to know that you or your customers can!? (most builders with this type of functionality sell for hundreds of dollars per month and you can do what they do using The HBA Funnel builder for just $25)

You also have the ability to integrate this with all of the major autoresponder platforms so you can send emails to your prospects when they get opted into your email list.

All of these really cool things that you can do with this funnel builder tool.

As I mentioned above, there’s also a store so you can create products in here and connect your merchant account and collect revenue from your customers.

HBA Funnel Builder Store Area

Another popular feature of The HBA funnel builder tool is appointments.

So you can actually also create appointment booking pages with this funnel builder tool, where you can have a calendar for people to book appointments with you.

So here’s a picture of my calendar.

HBA Funnel Builder Appointment Booking Calendar Example

This is all with our funnel builder tool. So my (or your) client would come to my calendar page, click on the date, select a time and BOOM they’d be booked right into your schedule.

This also integrates with Google calendar.

The other thing that’s great about The HBA Funnel Builder Is you also get a contact section where all of your leads that come through your lead capture pages are stored.

If you happen to be selling digital products your customers information will be stored in the contact section here as well.

And so you’ve got, you know, even a little CRM back here where you can click on your prospect and you can take notes on that prospect.

You can sort it, you can search it.

It’s really, really amazing.

So that’s our funnel builder tool and you get everything that I just showed you for $25 a month.

So that is the first product that is really, really popular.

The second product that people usually want to know about is HBA Premium Traffic And Conversions Academy

If you want to do business on the internet, you first need a website and a sales funnel.

A sales funnel is just an automated sales process that people can go through.

If you can imagine a funnel that you use to put oil in your car.

Prospects or leads go in the top, then your funnel walks them through the educational process, relating to your products and services.

What drops out the bottom of that funnel?

Happy customers, money in your bank account.

The next thing you need after you have your funnel, is people to that funnel.

You need to know how to GET people to the funnel (or web page) and then once they’re there you need to know how to convert those people that are coming to your website, into happy customers.

In other words, traffic and conversions.

So that leads us to our second product, which is called HBA premium traffic and conversions academy.

HBA Premium Traffic & Conversions Academy

This product outlines in step-by-step detail, the methods that my business partner and I, and other top affiliates that are associated with us in the home business academy have used to get people to our websites and convert a large number of those visitors into a happy customers and revenue.

In fact, my business partner and I we’ve been doing business on the internet for over 10 years and we have, converted millions of dollars in sales.

This is a picture of what we’ve done in The Home Business Academy Alone.

*Results not average and not meant to serve as a guarantee of income. Please see my earnings disclaimer at the bottom of this page.

Prior to starting this company, my business partner, and I were top affiliates in other companies.

And we’ve been doing this stuff for over 10 years.

We’ve been helped to produce millions upon millions of dollars in sales revenue over the years.

The goal with this product was to organize everything that was in my brain and my business partner’s brain and put it in a place where others could easily learn what has helped us to do what we’ve done.

Also when we find people in the community who are having success with traffic and conversions, if they have some knowledge that we don’t have we put that in this product and organize it so that it’s easy for people to learn so our customers can go out and replicate these ideas and strategies and have success.

The other great part about our HBA premium traffic and conversions product is we also have live coaching because one of the things that we’ve noticed is that sometimes people will buy a product and maybe get stuck somewhere along the way.

We do our very best to make our products and our modules as step-by-step and as easy to follow and as easy to implement as humanly possible.

And we always want to go the extra mile to make sure that we’re there for people if they get stuck so that they know they can always get their question answered, they can always get live, help, and feedback to move them onto the next step.

And that’s why we’ve included in the premium product, a coaching section.

HBA Premium Live Coaching

We actually have a few different coaching sessions going on all throughout the week.

Two of our most popular ones are our Monday night marketing mastermind. (This is like a what’s working now webinar where we find people within our community that are having a lot of success, converting sales),

And we ask them to come and train us on what they’re doing so that we can all learn learn and a better grow own businesses.

The other thing that’s really popular is our traffic and conversions mastermind that we do every day, Monday through Friday, and it’s an hour long.

We have recordings available and we also have the ability for people to join live and the traffic and conversions a mastermind is me and my business partner, top marketers and sales, digital sales people coming together and actually doing traffic and conversions live in front of you and also being there to answer questions.

So all of that is included in HBA premium HBA premium is a monthly recurring membership of $125 and that product just like all of our other products pays 80% referral commissions.

So those are our 2 continuity products. HBA Funnel builder at $25 a month and HBA Premium at $125 a month. If you buy both products your total cost is $150 a month and you’ll earn $120 residual commissions from each customer you refer who does the same.

It only takes 2 referrals to be in profit with these 2 products in our affiliate program.

The Home Business Academy Compensation Plan Explained In Full Detail

Since I was 1 of the 2 people who created The Home Business Academy compensation plan, I believe there’s no better place to learn about it. (yes, I’m biased) 😉

My business partner, Mike and I, have been building businesses from home for over 10 years now.

We’ve built in a variety of different compensation plan structures. We’ve built in multilevel plans like binary, uni-level, mixed, matrix etc. We’ve also built in various affiliate marketing plans that have 2 or more tiers and some even with pass-ups included.

When we started The Home Business Academy, we had a simple goal, to help people be free as fast as humanly possible.

So we asked ourselves, ‘how much is the absolute maximum amount we can pay out to the affiliate to help them grow a residual income as fast as possible?’

We considered doing 100% payout with some kind of fee but we decided against that because we felt like it would be more honest and up front if we didn’t have an affiliate fee.

After a lot of brainstorming, we realized that we could implement our business model idea with an 80% payout rate, and still have enough money leftover for the company to cover hosting costs, customer service, product development and other fees associated with over head.

One day we were talking to an attorney we’d hired to help us create some content for one of our products.

This particular attorney is quite famous because he’s a best selling author and national speaker who’s been featured on various news outlets like The Wall Street Journal and

And in the course of talking to this person, we told him about our 80% payout rate. When he heard that, he said,

‘Yeah, that’s too much, You need to not do that. You can’t grow a company paying out that much money.

We knew our numbers really well, and we know our model really well and decided to continue on with our plan. It’s been a few years now since he told us that, and thankfully we’re still having massive success with this plan.

Our affiliates earn 80% of every qualified product sale right back to them in commissions.

Our plain is a 1 tier payout plan, which means you get paid on your personal referrals and no commissions from 2nd level on down. I’ll explain why we did that here in just a minute but but before I do that, I want to just show you the numbers.

One of the things we’re really focused on is residual income because that’s how freedom is created in life.

If you want to be free, you the thing that you want to do is build a residual income that equals or surpasses your monthly expenses.

And so with the residual portion of our our compensation plan is paid on our 2 continuity products, The HBA Funnel Builder and HBA Premium Traffic And Conversions Academy.

Here’s what the commission breakdown looks like on both of those products.

A lot of our customers buy both products because both of them make sense to own if you’re going to be doing business online.

When you refer a customer who also owns both of those, you are in $120 residual income for every customer you refer.

One of our taglines in The HBA is Freedom Faster.

The above illustration really does a great job of showing how that’s possible with what we do, because as you see, when you have

✔ five referrals on both of our residual products, you’ll earn $600 a month.

✔ When you have 10 referrals on both products, that’s $1,200 a month residual income.

✔ For most people the sweet spot is here between $2,400 and $4,800 a month, residual income and with our compensation plan, you only need 20 to 40 customers to get there.

Both Mike and I have built in various companies over the years where it took a lot more customers than this to make a lot less.

Here’s just one example:

One of the first businesses that I built from home was a network marketing company and we built a team of 600 active customers here in Idaho where I live.

That netted me $1,200 a month in residual incomes for a team of 600.

With The Home Business Academy compensation plan just 10 customers personally referred on both products would pay you $1,200 a month.

I don’t know about you, but 10 sounds a lot better to me than 600.

So that’s one of the KILLER aspects to our plan.

The other thing that’s really amazing about our compensation plan is that because we pay out such a high commission rate,

you can refer just 2 and be in profit

✔ With just one customer referral, your business is dang near free.

I don’t know of another business in the entire world where that’s possible, but it is possible with our compensation plan.

No Dumb Hoops To Jump Through

So the other couple of things I wanted to mention here, we do not have

❌ Point systems,

❌ Volume requirements,

❌ Ongoing production requirements,

❌ Any other ridiculous hoops to jump through in order to get paid.

The one exception here is you must own a product yourself to get paid on any sales you make of that product.

The main reason we did this is because we want to make sure our affiliates are trained in the best way AND be great ambassadors for our company and culture. Requiring product ownership for commission was the best way we could see to accomplish those 2 goals.

The reason we decided to skip out on all those other common compensation plan hoops is because one of the things that we experienced over the years is that there are some shenanigans that are played in the home business profession from time to time.

The Games People Play In Home Business

For example, some companies will have point systems where instead of paying you out on the revenue, you bring into the company through your production, they’ll translate that revenue into a point structure and then they’ll pay your commission based on the point structure and what a lot of people don’t realize is that they can monkey with that and they can lower the points and increase the price so that you’re actually producing more revenue for the company, but they’re paying out less and less because they’re monkeying with the point system.

So we just said, we won’t have a point system.

We’ll just eliminate it entirely because one of our values is simplicity.

Volume requirements is another one where some companies will say, in order for you to get paid the maximum commissions, you have to produce X amount every single month.

In other words, if you don’t produce in the way they require, you don’t get paid all your commissions.

We thought it would be much more fair to say instead…

If someone goes out there and does the work to gather a customer, why don’t we just pay them for the work that they did and not put these silly requirements upon them?

There’s a term in the profession called breakage.

Breakage is money money that seems like it’s supposed to be paid out to the affiliates, but because they didn’t meet the point requirement or they didn’t meet the volume requirement or they didn’t meet the status requirement or you fill in the blank, they can choose not to pay you.

So you have money that was brought to the company by an affiliate, and the company chooses to keep that money for themselves instead.

That’s called breakage and it’s not cool.

We didn’t want to do that.

We said, let’s just be fair.

Let’s just pay people as much as we can for the work that they do because they deserve it, and because we want to help them be free as fast as humanly possible.

The Powerful Leverage Points Within The Home Business Academy Compensation Plan

Because we are not a multi level plan, some people wonder where the leverage points are.

If you want to build wealth, leverage is key.

The ILLUSION of Leverage In Many Home Business Compensation Plans

One of the things that we learned in personal development as we’ve been growing over the years is that personal responsibility is SUPER Important. .

In fact, there’s a phrase often repeated in personal development that says ‘if it is to be it’s up to me‘.

A lot times what companies do in home business is preach that line and then handcuff your income to a bunch of factors that are TOTALLY outside your control.

They’ll compensation plans that are based upon not what you do, but, instead based on what a whole bunch of other people might do.

And at the end of the day, in these types of plans, you’re not in control of your income because you’re not in control of what people do or don’t do.

You’re only in control of you.

And so we wanted a compensation plan where if you wanted to increase your income, you could do it and you wouldn’t have to rely on what John did or Susie did, or Sally did, because it’s up to you.

If it is to be it’s up to me. and that’s the power of a one tier payout.

Because it’s 1 tier, we’re able to load that comp plan with 80%, the max commissions possible.

This is a good thing because if all the commissions are coming to you instead of being divided up 6 ways from Sunday and shared with people who had nothing to do with your sale, it means you can grow your income to whatever level you want to grow it to without relying on or being dependent on anyone else.

This means your income is only limited by 2 factors, your work ethic and your skill level.

Skills we can help you with. Work ethic you must bring to the game.

Ok back to the illusion of leverage in many compensation plans.

In network marketing they always have these charts in the presentations where they say this is easy, just get two who get two, who get two, who get two and, you know, on level 10 or level 12, you’re gonna be making all this money.

The Truth Shall Set You Free

Well, what they don’t tell you in those presentations is that there is this principle that popped up for us in personal development and then it popped up for is in real life as we were building our businesses.

It’s called The Pareto Principle or The 80 20 Rule. It simply means that generally speaking, 20% of the people will produce 80% of the results.

If this is true and you’re building your income based on the hope that you’re gonna have an army of people who’re gonna max out the flip chart by getting 2 who get 2 who get 2, you could be setting yourself up for MAJOR disappointment.

But if all of your income is in your hands, You don’t have to be held hostage to the 80% who might not do much because you can choose to be in the 20% that produces the results and that puts your income back in your hands.

How To Get 5 Years Of Residuals Each And EVERY Month Your Customer Stays Active

One form of leverage with The Home Business Academy Compensation Plan is that you’re going to earn a lot more income on that initial sale, and every sale thereafter.

That’s a leverage point, right? (The ability to do more with less)

So how does that play out with our compensation plan?

I’ve built in compensation plans where I’ve earned as little as $2 residual for a customer referral.

In The Academy, I earn $120 residual for a customer referral.

If you pull out your calculator and take $120 and divide it by $2, you’ll see that you’ll come up with the number 60.

That means that in a program where I’m earning $2, residual, that customer would have to remain active for 60 months.

How long is that?

That’s five years for me to finally get that $120 back in my pocket.

Compare that to referring just one person to the academy and making five years worth of residual in month one.

And as long as that customer stays active, the next month, I earn another five years with worth of residual and the next month, another five years’ worth of residual, and on and on and on.

That’s a leverage point.

The Leveraging Power Of Residual Income

That customer could remain a customer for the next 12 months or longer, and that means you’re applying leverage because you’re getting paid again and again, and again, and again, and again, and again for work you did once.

Another leverage point.

The Magic Of Leveraging Systems

I once had a mentor who taught me that there’s only a few things that make money.

  1. Money at work
  2. People at work
  3. Systems at work.

We leverage systems inside The Home Business Academy

This means that rather than you having to learn how to be a super dooper sales person and design killer high converting funnels, you can use what other smart marketers have already created for you and take a HUGE shortcut.

Now, if you want to learn that all that sooper dooper stuff, we teach it, and we give you the tools to be able to do it, but not everyone wants to do that, and not everyone has the skill, at least in the beginning to do it well.

And so in the academy, we have very talented marketers, who have produced amazing results in many different businesses.

Those talented marketers love our vision and community so much that they have volunteered to create the sales messages and funnels so that you can leverage their skills and grow your income without having to be ‘The Guy‘ or ‘The Gal‘ who knows it all.

This is yet another leverage point you can profit from inside The Home Business Academy.

The ASTOUNDING Leverage Power Of The Internet

Here’s the last leverage point I’ll highlight within The Home Business Academy.

We love the internet.

We’ve been building businesses on the internet for a long time now, and we are PROS at using it for mass leverage.

Here are some things the internet makes possible that most people are TOTALLY missing out on.

The internet makes it possible to…

✔ Send out an email and connect with thousands of people and have thousands of people. look at your sales message with one email and the click of a button.

That’s a leverage point.

✔ You could create a YouTube video that plays on YouTube over and over and over while you’re sleeping, while you’re on vacation with your family while you’re out doing whatever it is that you want to do, that video can be on YouTube and interested, prospects can be finding that video, watching that video and joining you in your business and giving you money while you’re not even there physically in the sales equation.

Yet ANOTHER, MASSIVE Leverage point.

The Home Business Academy Compensation Plan In A Nutshell

To recap and wrap up,

✔ 80% Commissions on every personal customer referral direct to you.

✔ Commissions paid weekly

✔ No complicated hoops or gotchyas to get paid all the money you deserve

✔ Multiple MASSIVE Leverage points
